The SPARK Science Learning System will not charge.
This may be the result of a charge controller in a bad logical state, a defective charge controller, a defective/expired battery, or, in the case of the charging station, poor electrical contact. If the SPARK will charge when connected to a power adapter, but not when connected to a PS-2570 SPARK Charging Station, see Tech Note 1137. Otherwise, please follow the troubleshooting procedure below:
If the SPARK SLS will not power on, press the Reset button on the back and try to turn it on again. If the SPARK SLS still will not power on, open the battery case, and unplug the battery cable. If this resolves the problem, replace the PS-2569 battery; otherwise, email Teacher Support with the serial number of your SPARK SLS to have the unit repaired.
